Now that we are fully entrenched in the DC New 52, it's about time the animated films caught up! Warner Bros. announced JUSTICE LEAGUE: WAR, based on the Origin storyline that started out the new universe. As per Warner Bros. press release:
When the powerful Darkseid and his massive, relentless forces
invade Earth, a group of previously unaligned super heroes
– misunderstood and, in some cases, hunted by the
authorities – discover the only way to fend off the attack will
be to work together as a cohesive unit. Batman, Superman,
Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash, Shazam and, in
his origin story, Cyborg combine their respective talents in an
all-out battle to save the planet. Based on the 2012 graphic
novel, “Justice League: Origin,” by Geoff Johns & Jim Lee,
JUSTICE LEAGUE: WAR provides a glance into the world
before the Justice League was created, and offers the initial
animated incarnation of DC Entertainment’s “The New 52.”
This sounds great! The film will be released on February 4, 2013 on BluRay, DVD and Digital Download. If you can't wait, watch the trailer below.
